Why Should Recent Graduates Care About Retirement Planning?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:41AM / Wednesday, May 08, 2019

If you've graduated from college in the past year or so and started your first job, you're no doubt learning a lot about establishing yourself as an adult and being responsible for your own finances. So thoughts of your retirement are probably far away. And yet you have several good reasons to invest in your 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored retirement plan.

First of all, by contributing to your 401(k), you can get into the habit of regular investing. And since you invest in your 401(k) through regular payroll deductions, it's an easy way to invest.

Furthermore, your 401(k) or similar plan is an excellent retirement-savings vehicle. You generally contribute pre-tax dollars

Health Matters: Four Quick Tips to Protect Against Anaplasmosis
By Marie J. George,
09:16PM / Tuesday, May 07, 2019

For those who don't work in health care, the disease anaplasmosis sounds made up. In reality, it's the second most common tick-borne illness affecting our region. 

Like Lyme disease, the most common one, it is caused by bacteria carried by the blacklegged tick. According to the Vermont Department of Health, Vermont has the highest annual incidence of anaplasmosis nationwide.

You can get anaplasmosis, Lyme disease, as well as a handful of less common tick-borne diseases from the same bite. Because of the tick life cycle, the number of tick bites peaks in May and June and again in late October and November. 

Here are some quick tips to protect you against anaplasmosis and

Letter: Dante Birch for Williamstown Planning Board
Letter to the Editor,
06:00PM / Tuesday, May 07, 2019

To the Editor:

I have been involved in Williamstown government for many years, but until today I have not publicly endorsed any candidate for elected town office. I am breaking my habit now to endorse Dante Birch for the Williamstown Planning Board because he possesses the personal qualities that are essential to the success and credibility of town boards.

Good town government is marked by board members who have attributes like Dante's: an authentic willingness to explore different points of view, an inquiring mind that remains open to finding the best solutions, an honest respect for all the citizens of the town, a commitment to transparency, and skill in building consensus.

Letter: Amy Jeschawitz for Williamstown Planning Board
Letter to the Editor,
04:00PM / Tuesday, May 07, 2019

To the Editor:

Williamstown will voters will face an important election on May 14, and it is crucial that Amy Jeschawitz be re-elected to the Planning Board.

When I first moved to Williamstown in 1988 as the principal of the Williamstown Elementary School, I was disappointed to note that new staff members hired at the school could not afford to live in Williamstown and had to find housing elsewhere. Unfortunately, the shortage of moderately-priced housing still exists. Given the importance of diversified housing choices for the economic future of our community, this is a very important issue.

As a member of the Planning Board, Amy recognizes this problem and has worked hard to provide

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williamstown Community Preschool began sprucing up its new home by hiring local sign maker Lindsay Neathawk, owner of Neathawk Signs and Design, to create a 3D sign for the business.

Neathawk installed the sign late Monday afternoon that features multicolored hand prints from the children as the leaves of a tree poking out of the top. Underneath the name and address "a place to grow" is written. The children's hand prints were taken at the school and Neathawk then scanned them into her design programs to create the sign.
